PRONTO International’s ultimate goal is to improve the quality of care during birth to help save the lives of mothers and babies. We could not do this without our invaluable volunteers. The dedication and energy of our volunteers and trainers enables us to expand programs and take on projects we could not do otherwise. PRONTO is grateful to have worked with so many amazing people around the world who have come together in efforts to save the lives of mothers and babies during childbirth.
